Canine urinary tract infections (UTIs) are common in both first opinion and referral practice patients. Understanding the aetiology will help to identify those at-risk patients. Diagnosis incorporates findings from the history, clinical examination, complete urinalysis and urine culture. A UTI may be a primary disease or secondary to a wide array of underlying predisposing conditions. Recurrence of infection is likely unless any predisposing condition is identified and treated appropriately.
